Default "You should get a muzzle if you don't trust him"

Walking Xena this morning. As I'm going along the front of the school, I see a lady getting out of her car and heading toward the school entrance. She was dressed nicely and I thought for sure that she wasn't interested in "meeting" Xena. So I stopped, shortened the leash, put her in a sit and let the lady pass. As she was going by, she said, "You should get a muzzle if you don't trust him out in public." WTF? One of the few times in my life where I was just dumbfounded and didn't know what to say. First, Xena wasn't doing anything. She was just sitting there being a good girl. Normally, she's a bit of a jumper but there is not an aggressive bone in her body that I've seen. She is happy to meet you no matter what. In this case, the only thing she was guilty of was WWB (walking while brindle). Perhaps she thought that "he" was an evil pit bull

On second thought, though, a muzzle might not be a bad idea. Would save me from all of the licks and slobber she she loves to bestow on me.

I wish I could afford to keep an assortment of muzzles with me -- to hand out to people who need to be muzzled.

Not a bad idea. This lady sure could have used one. Perhaps just a roll of duct tape would work. I can attach it to the leash right by the poop patrol bag dispenser.

Oh! Great idea! And you could put it on one of those quick spool dispensers. RIIIPPP/SNAP! Blessed silence!

I actually wouldn't mind everyone's dog's having to be muzzled. It's not the law over here for Pitties to be muzzled, but it is in other parts of Canada. If thats the case I think we should be strapping muzzled on all dogs, not just the "scary" ones.

Im a cheeky bugger and would have offered her a muzzle. That or made obnoxious snarling noises until she went away.

That last shot is particularly terrifying . . . .

Bandit made a man and a woman cry last month when I had him in town. They both didn't notice us walking up behind them. Bandit didn't even look at them, but when he came into their eye sight they jumped sixteen feet in the air and backwards, screamed, and the water works started. That was a WTF moment. But I guess most dogs out and about downtown are pretty small so he did look like a giant.

Most people are pleased when you walk to the side to let them pass.

I bet she was a PTA mom.
